The Sunrise Theater is situated amidst the magnolias and long-leaf pines on Broad Street in Southern Pines, North Carolina. The building, erected in 1898, began as a hardware store. In the 1940s, the building became a movie theater which remained a staple of downtown Southern Pines for over 40 years. When the movie house closed its doors, for what appeared to be its last time, in the early 1980s, the Arts Council of Moore County (ACMC) and the Sandhills Little Theater rallied enough community support to restore the building and give it a third life as the Performing Arts Center, owned and operated by ACMC.
Weymouth was established in 1903 by Pennsylvania coal baron James Boyd as a winter country retreat. Later, as the home of his grandson, noted author James Boyd, it served as a gathering place for many prominent authors of the 1920s and 30s. Rescued from demolition and restored by Friends of Weymouth, it is now the home of Weymouth Center for the Arts and Humanities.
Southern Pines Brewing Company first started as an idea in the spring of 2013. Micah, John, and Jason were at the mid-point of their military careers as Green Berets in the U.S. Army, and all had served on the same Operational Detachment Alpha Team. The three had homebrewed some in the past and enjoyed the social atmosphere that homebrewing provided. After being reassigned to new jobs, they came up with the idea of starting their own business after hearing an investor talk about his ownership in a local, North Carolina craft brewery. The entrepreneurial spark was ignited, and the three began to develop a plan to open a craft brewery of their own.
Imagine a woodland where time has stood still and where nature is protected and will never fall victim to bulldozers and concrete.
